Visiting these memorials with a guide who knows the history behind them is the best way experience them. The story is an emotional one, it tells of loss, despair, courage, adversity, brutality and dignity. It's an unforgettable experience, and seeing the other monuments in the near vicinity ties it all together in a narrative about WW2 and the courage of... More

This is another great memorial to the sufferning events of WWII. Really sobering and another reminder of what the people of Warsaw and the rest of Poland have risen from.

This is a must visit museum in Warsaw. Well organized and modern. Very respectful with a balanced perspective and dedication to the atrocities committed upon the Jewish People of Eastern Europe and Poland. Well worth a few hours of your tiime even if you have visited similar types of museums in other locations.

This is a powerful monument dedicated to the Jewish Ghetto of Warsaw that was built by the Nazis. It was a part of the city of Warsaw that was walled off and where Jewish people were forced to live in crowded unsanitary conditions and eventually starved or killed. Horrible history. Powerful memorial.

This is an Important historical monument situated on site of the old Warsaw Ghetto and is directly opposite the POLIN Museum, so don't forget to have a look at the monument when you visit the museum.

We visited with a guide who was able to tell us about some of the people who were a part of the Jewish Uprising and are represented in the memorial. Gave it so much more meaning. A story to remember, for all generations. The new POLIN Museum is beautiful, but we didn't have time go visit. Maybe next time.

Jewish Ghetto Memorial, is one of the most important sites in the city. Very difficult to stand in front of the memorial site. Thinking about what happened to those Jewish people during the Holocaust. Sad place that must be visited if you are Jewish or not.

Built in 1948 on the site where the first clashes of the tragic, hopeless Warsaw Ghetto uprising took place five years earlier, this massive two-sided monument has become an icon and a site for Jewish pilgrimage. One side depicts a relief of the persecuted people in the ghetto, while the other side, which faces what is now the POLIN Museum,... More
